Loved this place.

Fabulous views, one could sit here for ages just looking out at Africa! A bit of a climb to get up there from where the car is parked but well worth the effort.

We had a calm day and so the rocks were silent! The climb was manageable even by a three year-old and an older person. Great views and some good info at the top. Worth the climb. There is a table in a shady area where up to 8 people could have a picnic lunch or snacks.

A place where you will be able to see the famous roaring rock in the middle of Tsavo West National park. This place is quite interesting just adjacent is other interesting attractions like the Chaimo lava

You are allowed to leave your car here to climb up the rocky hill in a few minutes. At the top you will find a renewed resting-place with bench and table for your picnic,shelter from the wind.Even the wind is not roaring its worth to visit because of the view overlooking Tsavo - Ngulia Range one side - Seven Sisters...

Amazing view of the park at the top! We spotted a heard of elephants from the top. There is a spot at the peak that provides a shade to enjoy your lunch after a morning game drive too.

loved the walk up to the peak of the hills. Amazing views of nature. My kids were thrilled with the easy climb and they got to see a couple of animals from right up the hills.
